27-year-old seriously injured in Yolo County car crash

A 27-year-old man from Woodland remains hospitalized after suffering life-threatening injuries Saturday morning in a car crash north of Davis.

The man was driving a 2005 Toyota Tundra pickup truck about 1:10 a.m. when he tried to pass a 2008 Chevrolet sedan on southbound Highway 113 just south of County Road 29, according to a California Highway Patrol news release.

As the Toyota driver tried to pass on the Chevy’s left, his truck drifted into the sedan’s lane and clipped its front side, according to the release. The Toyota driver then oversteered and lost control of his truck, which veered southwest off the road, hit a chain-link fence, flipped over multiple times and finally came to rest upside-down in the middle of County Road 99.

The 27-year-old was ejected from the Toyota and taken to Kaiser Permanente Vacaville Medical Center with major, life-threatening injuries. He was not wearing a seatbelt.

The Chevy driver and passenger, a 60-year-old man and 57-year-old woman from Vacaville, sustained minor injuries but were not hospitalized.
